Who said we're preparing the planet for colonists? All I heard was that we crash landed there.

On this planet was running an expedition with the purpose of mastering the planet, but something went wrong and we crashed on the planet, so the story was written

I use biters to get more varying logistic chains. Production of science in vanilla game is boringly straightforward chain without variations and strategic decisions. Of course current biters are not very significant improvement, but they gives train or two and few assemblers. Fortunately there are lots of mods with hundreds of intermediate and side products to improve logistic challenge, but I like to play also modded games with biters and very large starting area so that I do not have to care them from beginning.

Everytime i see this my eyes water up. Tears of joy of course. These dev's continue to be a shining beacon of hope in the Indie dev world and showing how PR and marketing should be done, that and the updates. The updates! The communication with the community. Absolutely love these devs and the game factorio.

It's not useless on smaller late-game bases, but it's still way too easy.
My mods can be found on my homepage: https://sigma-one.gitlab.io/
They include nuclear and military stuff right now.

I wouldn't mind it being harder to build. Like for example making the 'concrete' in the Reactors and other nuke building to be Refined Conrete and lock refined concrete behind Blue science. Game balance? Done!
What pisses me off is that fluids make a complete mess of FPS/UPS once they are big enough because they are not code optimized.

There is nothing to be scared about - if i'm remembering correct, the devs told us that they planning to finalize this game soon since 0.14.

I think a completely green alternative to energy generation would be an amazing addition.

My idea is wind generation that has a set mean energy production but is not particularly reliable.
By this i mean the output can vary throughout the day from say 25% up to 125% potential with a Gaussian distribution so that with many different windmills in your wind farm, you obtain a more stable power output.

It would make a good substitution for solar during the night!

A agree tht wind power would very be nice to have.

Re: Friday Facts #120 - Spidertron

It has been 908 days since the spidertron was first revealed. Is there any hope this will be in 0.17 or 1.0? It is on the "low priority" section of the roadmap; I would just like to know if it is still being considered.

The story essentially follows an engineer that crashlands on an alien planet, and while the single-player story does explore this, there isn't a nice, short, eye-candy crashland sequence of one's ship. Having the debris lying around after said crash would better explain why we start off with a few iron plates in our inventory.

If people want an "ending", the player could be allowed to enter their rocket, launch, cue fade-to-black screen, roll credits (yaaay, kovarex & team!!!). Player is given an option to save their game, skip the credits and continue on their map, in which the game replays a similar crashland sequence of the formerly launched rocket in which the player miraculously survives said landing in an area very close to the outermost regions of the spread of their base,
Yes, this is very Rimworld-esque, the parallels are obvious, but it seems like the only canonical way to go about this.
You can already do this. Put a car in the rocket and then you can enter it like the car. Too bad you don't win launching yourself in a rocket.

Is better fluid physics still low priority? I heard they were working on this again.

Did 0.17 reach the experimental branch? Or not yet?

If it has, is there a place to see what has been released on Experimental so far? I would like very much to see what the new map generation looks like... assuming that it has been done and is available in the experimental branch.

If there's no post on 0.17, there is no experimental release.
If there is a post, it will contain the changelog.

Thanks. I was under the mistaken impression that only formal releases got posted there.
